Zach Hauser began formal arts education at NSCAD University (Halifax) in photography. In 1979 he earned his BFA from the University of Saskatchewan. During his post graduate studies in Germany, his skills as a photographer were honed, and a spark was lit for furniture making. Zach has had numerous professional affiliations including: adjudicator for the Saskatchewan Craft Council; member of the Saskatchewan Craft Council; past member of the Board of Directors of the Mendel Art Gallery; and past board member for CARFAC Saskatchewan. Zach is a professional studio furniture maker - artistic furniture is his passion, fueled by a background in professional photography. His design process is driven by light, composition, surface, and practical application.
"Zach Hauser's furniture ... reveal(s) his ongoing interest in the seductive material nature of swirling wood grain, and in challenging and enriching wood's emphatic presence by folding ephemeral light into it." (Anderson 2002)
